Hello Folks,

What's best and cheap way to order some products from Cabela's and Costco US and ship to Canada (Quebec)?

Thanks for sharing your experience.

A lot of this comes down to Company Policies

You need to check their websites for that info

Cabelas like Costco has a .ca one … so they may have rules surrounding Cdns ordering from their .com websites for shipment to Canada

This is quite common with American Cos that have a Cdn presence … it’s a way of protecting their market interest they’ve invested heavily into for Canada

Some Cos … like LL Bean for example … have Cdn Stores now … but allow Cdns to shop on either their .ca or .com websites, and ship to Canada

Where others do not …
IIRC this is the case for Costco USA, as well as others like Home Depot, Lowe’s, Bed Bath & Beyond, etc

Some even go so far as to block Cdn CCs … or the addresses of Parcel Drop Services who will push product North to Canada

So. …
First steps

1- Read the website shipping policies
2- Try to place an order … see if it goes thru or not
3- Try both your Cdn address … or one for a US Parcel Drop Service

If it works great …
Worse case scenario at this point … you have to get the Parcel Drop to push the item North to your home address
Or you have to drive over to pick it up

None of this works …
Then very little you can do
You’ll have to go over & buy in person

Or … I hear there are now US Personal Shopping Services who can shop for you and then arrange shipping
BUT … that’s uber expensive

Considering you are importing with no personal exemption
And the exchange these days is pushing $ 1.40
It’s prob not worth all the hassle to shop in the US
(Was recently there and after exchange … Americans are paying more than us for most things)

However … if it is worth it to you
Or something new and not yet available in Canada
Might be worth a road trip / weekend getaway
(Although hotels & food in the USA have also gone up a whole lot post Covid )

Your Canada Customs Personal Exemptions would be
$ 0 Cdn up to 24 Hours away
$ 200 Cdn after 24 Hours away
$ 800 Cdn after 48 Hours away

Not entirely sure about Cabela's but with Costco, you don't.
Good luck even using a reshipper because Costco has a list of most of them and has banned delivery to them.
Do you not have anything else to do rather than argue with strangers on the internet
Nope. That's why I'm on the internet arguing with strangers. If I had anything better to do I'd probably be doing it.
